Forum: etree Subject: Streaming Oggs

Hi, is there a reason we can't stream the oggs? There's obviously no technical reason, all you'd have to do is put a list of the urls of each ogg file in a .m3u, just like is done for the vbr mp3s.

Ogg is an ideal streaming format, it is higher quality at a lower bitrate than the vbr mp3s. Every media player has support for ogg, since we're just talking about streaming we don't have to worry about hardware compatibility.

The thing is, oggs are streamable today. I just have to write my own .m3u. Why don't you script that so everyone can have the benefit of streaming oggs? Nothing could be easier.

They probably can't do that without Band permission -ie -in the same realm as permission to have SB's available(and i mean any band)
that's my guess....
BTW, That would be a great band name "The Streaming Screaming Oggs"

No permission needed, just engineer attention. :) I'm sure we'll add them at some point, until then there are directions on the forum history somewhere from xtifr to edit the m3u's so the ogg's stream instead of the mp3's.
